I Colonel Tim Lee, as the l'osi
calls him, I was lasl Saturday appointed
immigrant iusieetor at Wilmington, N.
N. C, at a salary of five dollars a day.
Tim kept n liar room in Knleigh sonic
years ago, and afterwards rarried on the
same Imsiness in the I'ost building in this
city. So seductive were the cocktails
that he concocted here, that he won the
lavor ol many prominent iiemocrats;
such as Pat Collins and Tim Campbell,
and by their in ftueiu-e secured a position
in the government printing office under
the last administration. As soon as Mr.
Harrison took his seat, Tim blossomed
out as full-Hedged KrptiMiean and has
done some some tall talking for the
grand old party at tile Ivhhitt house.
Recently I met one of tiic young Kings
county politicians who hcljied to delcnt
Mr. Cleveland. I tiring the last ndminis
tion he was appointed I a position in
the interim !i pnri'iicnl under civil-service
rules, lint when the work upon which
I hey were engaged was finished, Vilas
turned him and several other ! 'cinoerats
nit. Tiiis voting ui.in thought that if
any one hud to go. ;t should have been I
sonic of the Republicans with whom the
department was tilled. With his Con-1
gressinnn he weul t sec Cleveland and ami it was not until o'clock Tbn
lan l.ai i.iiu. but thev did nothing to therth that he was seen from the
help him. lie at once turned Kcpublicnn
;md when the campaign oicucd, he went
to Brooklyn and devoted his time and
money to the election ol damson and
Alorton. Last spring he came back to
the city, told Secretary I'roctor what lie
had done, and was rewarded with u
jilaee in the war department. He told
me that lie would have nothing to do
lierealtcr with a party that rewarded its
enemies instead o! its friends.
Mr. Lawrence II II, u younger brother
t our Licuteii!' H-l'toveruor, is now in
Washington, wliere he intends to pur
chase a home and reside until his chil
dren arc educated. He is a handsome
man and is said to be worth several hun
dred thousand dollars. I hope he will
buy the house owned and recently
occupied by Colonel Wilson, who was
lately appointed siiicriiitcnilcut ol the
military academy at West Point. It is u
lieautiful house, and the price asked, is
$211,000. It is fully worth the money.

Ingrain, which arrived here ycsvciday
morning from New York, rescued and
brought to this port an unfortunate sea
man who was found adrill in an open
boat at sea on the afternoon of Thurs
day last, about twenty-live miles south
east of I-enwick's Island. The man was
seen at the steamship wharf yesterday.
I Ic gave his name as IS. K. Lane, ol New
ark, X. J., and says he was employed 011
the fishing smack (leneral Grant, of Sum
mer's Point N. J. The smack had ten
men aboard, including the captain and
crew, and was engaged in catching blue
rish for Fulton market, New Vork. Wed
nesday the 2oth, al 3 p. m., about thirty
live miles 11I)' Cane Mav. Lane was lis'h-
ing a short distance from the smack. I le
had nothing with him in the mint but u
jug of water, his fishing tackle and a sin
gle pair of oars. About twenty minutes
alter he had commenced lishing hecaughi
.1 small shark, some two icet in lentrth
ami seeing several cither sharks arounil
the boat, he weal lorward to pull up his
alien, r, Knowing mat Ins chances lor
catching I liu-fish with sharks arounci
were rather slim, lie found, however,
that the cable attached to the anchor
had parted and that his boat was adrift.
The weather at this time had grown
foggy and l.e lost sight of the smirk, and
although he rowed about and holloaed,
he heard no answering sound from the
smack and soon realized dial he was
lost, i luring thai nighi and the next
day, he says, he hailed several passing
vessels, but could mil nuikehiuisch heard.

CiiiCAiio, Septcmlier 110. The specula

to-day. The ojiening was tirni on earlv
cables, it being exiectcd, too, that the
wet weather in the Northwest would re-
lard the movement. Later the market
advanced slightly, it averaging higher
than Saturday's closing all the forenoon.
11 was generally expected that the visible
supply increase would show in the neigh
borhood of l-i(ili,oii(i, and this had a
tendency to check reckless buying, but it
was noticeable throughout that the bear
element was eipinlly conservative and
that sK'culative olterhigs bv the crowd
generally were light. The largest individ
